"Black Hole", the latest video from Swiss industrial black metallers SAMAEL, can be viewed below.
Commented singer/guitarist Vorph: "If your favorite video clip from SAMAEL is 'Baphomet's Throne', you're going to love the new 'Black Hole' video. It's black and white with lots of live footage taken from the latest Swiss shows, all mixed up with various designs and animations. It has been filmed and edited by Sergeï Ulyanov, who happens to be the bass player of Makro's death/doom metal band SLUDGE. We've tried to come up with something simple which would fit the intensity and aggressiveness of the song. The video is very dense and hard to digest at once. You've been warned!"
"Black Hole" comes off SAMAEL's latest album, "Above", which entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 99.
Audio samples of all 10 tracks that appear on "Above", are available on Amazon.co.uk.
In an interview with Beyond the Dark Horizon, Vorph stated about "Above", "It is like an enhanced version of our three or four first albums, maybe the missing link between 'Ceremony of Opposites' and "Passage". With the 'Era One' project we've tried to work on different influences, [and] with 'Above' we stripped everything down. It is a metal album through and through. . . 'Above' is a little bit of a tribute to our early years as a band and to our first influences. If you listen to our two last albums, you can tell our roots go beyond that but 'Above' is a good résumé of what pushed us to start playing music in the first place."
